“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” – Matthew 7:15 (KJV)
Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. This means that He is God and the heir of the Father (Romans 8:17). When God wanted to carry out His will of saving mankind from sin, He groomed Jesus Christ and expressed Himself in and through Him. No wonder Jesus Christ said, “My Father who dwells in Me does the works” (John 14:10).
Dear beloved, if you want to know the Father, you cannot do it any other way except by knowing Jesus Christ first. If He said we should be mindful of false prophets, it should arrest our attention so that we take His words seriously. It means there are false prophets or hypocrites who call themselves prophets but are not.
They are vessels of the devil and his demons. How do they come to us? They come in sheep’s clothing, which means they come behaving like children of God but they are the children of the devil; they will use the same resources, like the Holy Bible, and twist the Word of God to deceive people and rob them of their dignity, money, reputation, integrity, wealth, etc. (John 8:44).
They may even come to your church to worship with you but with the wrong motive to steal, kill, and destroy; no wonder inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
Beloved, use the Word of God to judge them, and never be afraid of their threats and false prophecies, which create ungodly fear with the attempt to deceive you and rob you.
Always ask the Holy Spirit also to lead and prompt you to identify them by their conduct (fruits) and put them where they belong—under your feet. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer.
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for making me aware of the false prophets in our world today. Please endow me with the Spirit of discernment and scriptures to put them where they belong, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
